The bar, located in the Las Huescas neighbourhood, has been decorated with a total of 6,190 limited edition bottles that Tropical put on the market during last September as homage to the afición amarilla (yellow fans). The traditional green bottle was dyed yellow with an image of the team’s shield and the fans.
